More Information & Frequently Asked Questions

Is my new greenhouse supposed to be watertight?

The simple answer is No. Greenhouse manufacturers state that greenhouses are not made to be 100% watertight.

Some water ingress is likely to occur at the corner joints, roof vents and along the base rail where it meets the foundation. Being clean and new, it’ll take some time for the small gaps to ‘silt up’ which in turn will help reduce water ingress.

This shouldn't be viewed as an issue. Natural airflow and ingress/exit of moisture isn't a problem and helps to prevent a stale, stagnant environment.

Greenhouses are a completely different construction to that of a conservatory or similar. 

Please note we don’t offer the service of sealing the base to the foundation.

Tips for maintaining your greenhouse

Taking care of your greenhouse may not be the highest priority when there's seeds to be sowing, but it is crucial for the well-being of your plants. Regularly cleaning your greenhouse can significantly enhance the growing environment by eliminating algae, moss, and grime. This not only allows more light to enter but also helps in managing pests and diseases.

For effective cleaning, it is best to choose a damp morning when the dirt and algae are softer and easier to remove. Prepare a solution of warm soapy water and use a brush or sponge to clean all of the surfaces. Rinse with a hose or pressure washer for thorough cleaning.

Additionally, don't forget to clear any debris from the gutters, downpipes, and water butts to ensure proper water flow and prevent blockages.

If you spot any glass damage or parts not working correctly, just give us a call and we'll happily assist.
